1) Def Sound-"(A) Gain
The first time I heard this song, I fell in love. It was on constant repeat.
Then the video dropped, and got damn...
Take a listen (and a look) for yourself and see if you don't feel the same way.
2) The Civil Wars-"Barton Hollow"
I'm a fan of bluegrass/authentic country. (I've been looking into bluegrass festivals, and everything).
And you may have seen me go on entire spiels on Twitter about how much of today's country music whomps.
Believe it or not, there are many correlations between hip-hop and country music.
For one, mainstream country is also infused with too much pop, and its lost alot of it's soul, but this "Barton Hollow"? I eff with.
My mom actually introduced me to this song.
Even if you're not a fan of country, give it a listen. You may actually dig it.
3) The Beets-"I Need More Allowance"
Doug was (and still is) one of my all-time favorite television shows.
I'm sure many of The Clearance Aisle shoppers grew up with this jewel of a show just like I did, so this song will take you back.
4) Little Dragon-"Fortune" (AFTA-1 Remix)
I always enjoy a good remix, and AFTA-1 usually never fails me.
He also just so happens to mix my favorite artists (ex: Esthero, Little Dragon), and this "Fortune" mix is just tasty.
Sidenote: AFTA-1 is a beautiful creature.
5) The Kinks-"Set Me Free"
6) Empire Of The Sun-"Swordfish Hotkiss Night"
Did anyone see Empire Of The Sun live at Coachella? They killed it!
I've been a fan of there's for some time, and my brother loves them just as much as I do.
When they sing "Days go by days, all we do is roll on...", I think of my brother every time, and get internally weak.
It sounds just like him trying to sing bass.
7) Mount Kimbie-"Carbonated"
As you saw in this post, I recently went to a Mount Kimbie show.
I bought the CD, and I've been listening to it every day since.
8) Santigold feat. Karen O-"Go"
Here's the first sneak peek that Santigold has given us from her upcoming sophomore album.
